A band a day...Black Water Rising

Rob Traynor used to be the lead singer of Dust to Dust. Johnny Fattoruso used to be a guitarist for Stereomud. Mike Mesolsohn was the drummer for Boiler Room. And bassist Oddie McLaughlin is just happy to be here.

Together, they make up Black Water Rising, another band on the rise.

It's rare to find a band with their sound in New York City. You're used to finding a lot of bands with an indie sound. This band is about as rock and roll as it gets.

Their song "Brother Go On" has been gaining play on one of my favorite radio stations, Sirius' Octane. They're an unsigned band and it's one of the most played songs on that station all year.

They've been creating a bit of a buzz playing with bands like King's X.

No word on whether they've signed with a label yet, but they do intend to release their debut before the end of the year.

In the meantime, here's part of a live set from Clifton, New Jersey.
